Kimmel Bogrette is working with Montgomery County Community College (“MC3”) to develop a dynamic Health Sciences & Wellness Center. The transformed building will house the Health Sciences and Health/Fitness departments and their learning laboratories and clinics, and also be the center for the College’s athletics and student fitness programs. Lab and Clinic spaces include Computer Labs, Seminar Rooms, Nursing and Medical Assisting labs with simulation spaces, exam beds, and control rooms. For the Dental Clinic, 20 operatories will be set up with dental chairs, sinks, cabinets, eye wash and oxygen stations, prep tables, group study rooms, and waiting rooms for patients. Spaces will lend themselves to a variety of learning environments. Student gathering spaces will be integrated into the design and not forcefully placed as an afterthought. The project was designed to minimize its impact on the environment and will include green roofs, natural day-lighting, indoor trees and living walls, geothermal heating and cooling, energy efficient lighting, rain water harvesting, and a roof-top solar array. Additional project goals are to transform the building into a hub for a community of learners and to provide strong connections with the quad, adjacent playfields, public transportation, and pedestrian and vehicular access points.
